    PKHayden's Imagination drawings and sketches (some nudity)

    Hello all,


    i m a software engineer that has drawing as a hobby. I usually draw to relax,
    but latelly i was thinking about improving my drawings. I got a lot of books and i hope i have improved some

    I usually use paper and pencil , but sometimes i venture and use ink

    C&C welcome ( but please be gentle with a nerd ) )

    Here are a few characters i had in mind for a long time :

    if I were you I would: chill out my shading a little bit, work in 3/4 for heads, think about the nose more as an extrusion from the face. Think about what your lines are telling us. Also you have a tendency to pull your cheekbones out too much. Think more about the overall value structure when you are drawing a face as opposed to localised ones and I think your cheekbones will start looking a little more natural. Those eyes are huge, which is fine... but your making more work for yourself if you want to make a convincing value structured face, made from flesh as a study:do that. If you want to make a stylized pic, do that instead. Going inbetween has a tendency to look a bit strange. That life drawing is pretty nice, if of neutral gender.

    thank you for the advice .. i will try to make the cheekbones a little less evident... i think this happens because i think about the bone structure without thinking that there is some muscle on that. I have to stop that ...

    btw... sorry if i misunderstood you , but what life drawing ? all were made from imagination ...

    Nice work capturing those poses! As for faces, I'd say work on proportions more. What books have you gotten? I'd suggest a few books by George Bridgman like Constructive Anatomy, Bridgman's Life Drawings, and the Book of a Hundred Hands. Loomis is good too, though I can't suggest any particular books since I haven't used any by him.

    These are pretty good if they are from imagination You have done well so far, but I think you should focus a little more on the structures and propertions of the face at the moment. You are doing well at the moment, make sure you study those books, and keep the works coming

    By the way, Life Drawing is when you use a Live model for reference, not a photo
